    New psp only going to be released in Japan.

    Has anyone heard of the new Psp that is supposed to only be released in Japan. So far all I know is that it is supposed to be white. Though there could be more features and options added, but I'm not sure. I do know they plan and already have updates that will able the Psp to surf the web wirelessly.


    I wanna thank Raijin at NarutoEx for this sig!!^_^

    People, people this isn't about DS vs. PSP.
    The MODs will close this if it becomes another "which is better" thread...

    Quincy, got any links for that 'new' PSP? I'd like to read more about it.

    Well that would make me kind of angry if they realised a new version of the p.s.p. and the old versions werent able to use the new features. Do you know if they will update the older versions?

    if i recall, the new psp's are just in different casings, no extra hardware features. probably a new firmware will be installed on the new psp's to allow web browsing, but that can be flashed to work on the current psp's out right now.

    Threads been cleaned up a bit, but any more and it's no longer worth the trouble and I will close it.

    If it's just a casing change then I'm sure eventually they'll either release it in America or you'll be able to buy the case alone and swap it yourself.

    Personally I like the sleek black casing it already has.

    Today, Sony Computer Entertainment released the long-awaited Firmware 2.0 Update for its popular handheld, the PSP. The update gives the PSP a number of new functions, including a Web browser and support for AAC files, the audio format used by Apple's iPod. The 16MB PSP update patch is available for download at Sony's official Japanese PSP Web site.


    When the Firmware 2.0 Update was announced last week at the PlayStation Meeting 2005 in Tokyo, it was (presumably) meant only for the Japanese market. However, North American PSP owners were pleasantly surprised to find that the update works fine on PSPs bought in the US. Although the download instructions on the Japanese PSP Web site require some translating, the update can detect US PSP's language settings and will automatically switch to English. However, because of the amount of functionality added, installation is slightly more complex than previous updates.

    PSP owners should note that the installation of the Japanese Firmware 2.0 Update on US PSPs has not been endorsed by Sony Computer Entertainment America and could potentially cause problems. Editors at GameSpot (which also doesn't officially advocate the installation) experienced no difficulties after installing the patch and were surfing the Internet within minutes. Non-Japanese speakers will have to work off of a semi-garbled translation.

    Together with the release of its new PSP update, Sony has launched its Japanese movie-download service site, Portable TV. Currently, the site offers seven free movies, but its library is expected to grow to 100 free and premium selections by mid-August.

    A list of new functions for PSP system software version 2.0 is as follows:

    Network
    -Internet browser function (no Macromedia Flash support)


    Video
    -Jump function (for UMD video, UMD music)
    -A-B repeat function (UMD video, UMD music, videos on Memory Stick Duo)
    -4:3 screen ratio mode (for videos on Memory Stick Duo)
    -Audio Options switching function (for videos on Memory Stick Duo)
    -Support for MP4 (AVC) playback (for videos on Memory Stick Duo)

    Audio
    -Support for ATRAC3, plus sound file transfer to Memory Stick Pro Duo using Music SonicStage Version 3.2
    -Support for MP4 (AAC) and WAV (Linear PCM) playback (for audio on Memory Stick Duo)
    -UMD music can now be played under [Music]

    Photo
    -Addition of wallpaper function
    -Addition of image transfer function
    -Support for TIFF, GIF, PNG, and BMP file formats

    Settings
    -Added Korean menu option
    -Added character set option
    -Added "Theme Setting"
    -Added "Internet Browser launch restriction" in security settings
    -WPA-PSK (TKIP) security format in network settings
    -Settings for Infrastructure Mode under [Network Settings] were revised to be easier to use.
    -Input modes were added to the onscreen keyboard.
    Need more info, just ask. Or stop being a moron and use Google.

    Well I guess I'm a little late. I didn't hear anything about a new psp. Oh well, better late than never. Who here actually speaks Japanese b/c I'm learning the language and need to practice with someone. Pm me if you can help.
